At last night’s awards ceremony, New York fashion designer Joseph Altuzarra was named this year’s winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, for his promise as an emerging talent.  I absolutely love the splash of the hawaiian print on the sporty techno designs that he sent down the runway.

Congratulations to a well deserving winner!

Today I wanted to share my must-have for the fall/winter season: Coated Denim.  Those who love the leather effect but want to let their skin breathe are getting their hands on these leather look-alikes.  These jeans are either painted, wax glazed or coated with beeswax to create a shiny, waterproof texture.  Super versatile - dress up or down!  These Leatherettes from AG Jeans are my favorite!  Buy them here: AG Jeans - Leatherette

The prized White Truffle is called the White Diamond of Italy and grows from September to December.  In early October I went to the Ferragamo Estate in Tuscany where I went truffle hunting, which is very similar to hunting for buried treasure..  I was fortunate enough to find a couple!  In keeping with the true Tuscan tradition, our lunch spread was simple and rustic.  You might get tired of looking for truffles but you’ll never get tired of eating them :)
